About Kae Sun:

Like any good songwriter, Kae Sun uses his music to address a wide range of social and spiritual issues. Born and raised in the West African nation of Ghana and immigrated to Canada in his teens, Kae is of the generation of  informed, creative young Africans who seem equally at home anywhere in the world.  His 2009 debut, Lion On A Leash, made many critics' lists of top indie releases of the year. In 2011, Kae released an acoustic EP Outside The Barcode that charted well at community radio in the US including being chosen as "Top Tune of the Day" at KCRW, it also landed him on the cover of Performer Magazine.  Kae Sun is currently working on a new album that will be released fall 2012.
